Really nice place, amazing food and friendly staff. Been many times and will continue to come. Can be busy on the weekends but worth waiting for a table. They do take out as well.

Dropped in for something light to eat, wonderful food, friendly staff, cosy little restaurant. Enjoyed the soup, we weren't going to eat anything sweet but the desserts were just too tempting and they were fabulous.
